|A Coppiced Christmas Tree?
Cutting Tree after Tree… from the Same Stump
Many woody plants resprout from the stump when cut down. We call the regrowth “coppice”, and the management system “coppicing”. One trims away everything except for the desired sprout. This is the third or fourth ‘Christmas’ tree cut from the same tree stump – now 50 years old.
Dave Jacke, author of the 2-volume set, Edible Forest Gardens, and his permaculture associate Mark Krawczyk are writing a much needed book on this subject of coppicing. You can help support the writing of this book and be one of the first to own a copy by pre-ordering your copy now. Becky and I did. Can’t wait to read it.
